Going Down Swinging
by The Radio Dept.
(28 plays) | (0 fans)

"Going Down Swinging" was a direct comment on the Swedish national elections on September 9th, 2018. Despite an effortless dream pop sensibility, “Going Down Swinging” slings razor sharp jabs at the current state of things: “Nazis should be dealt with like in Normandie/ Only inbreds join an alt right parade/ Someone please tell that to Morrissey.”: https://www.stereogum.com/2012080/the-radio-dept-going-down-swinging/music/

Red Ribbon will play Barboza on Friday, November 23rd, 2018. Did you know that the cover of "Your Car" cleverly doubled as a for-sale ad for Red Ribbon singer-songwriter Emma Danner's 1999 Honda Accord before her band left on tour in early October?: https://www.thestranger.com/slog/2018/09/07/31955972/the-cover-of-red-ribbons-new-single-your-car-doubles-as-an-ad-for-singers-vehicle
